Men’s Reserves Update

Ethan's back and reserves march into the semis

Our reserves eased into the semi-finals of the Macron Cup on Saturday with a convincing 5-1 win over Florence's 1st XI.

And apart from the fantastic result which saw our boys 4-1 up by half-time, the game saw a very welcome return from injury for our creative midfielder Ethan Vale.

Ethan has been out since picking up a nasty ACL injury at Widnes in January 2023 and this was the first time he's been on a football field since.

On his return, Ethan who recently turned 23, played the first half scoring with a 25 yard free kick and then again from the penalty spot.

Further goals were added by Jenson Guest and Callum Collis with an own goal completing the scoring.

There was also a return from injury for Jack Wakefield. The former Leek player linked up with Neil Baker when the gaffer joined us in December. Jack has been out for nearly two years, so seeing him in a Newcastle shirt is a real bonus too.
